    I've got an air compressor to repair. It's a "B & D compressor", has www.bandcompressors.co.uk written in big letters.

    I've checked it out and basically it's not building pressure past 40-50psi. So I suspect the problem is reed valve, piston ring or head gasket but before I crack it all open I thought I'd lookup the website and try and source some parts.

    This is where I got a little stuck though, no website exists at www.bandcompressors.co.uk and I can't seem to find anywhere else to source any B & D parts.

    Has anyone else heard of this make of compressor ? I have found a company by this name in Leigh, but they have no website at all, sounds a little odd.

    No point taking it apart if I can't source the parts.

    Yh that's the one I found too but my point was that they have www.bandcompressors.co.uk plastered all over the compressor but no such website exists. In any of the online directories there is no website listed against this company in Leigh.

    Thanks for the offer Candobill. Looking at it is not the problem, its a question of whether any spare parts are available for it. That reminds me need to ring this company.
